Let us assume a class size of thirty. That is thirty shower heads needing plumbed in, and some partitions, not to mention thirty good quality lockers.
That being said, there should always be enough shower heads that all students involved in activities can shower without queuing anyway.Here is how it
Thirty kids are in the physical education class for the day. They walk into a cubicle, and from that moment, the cubicle becomes their own for the
duration of the lesson. That is, from the moment they walk in, to the moment they walk out after the completion of the lesson. When the lesson is
complete, or when an individual student gets sent to an early shower, the teacher sends a message to their phone, which will be in their locker. That
message will have the exit code, to be entered on a cheap, but solidly designed digital system built onto the both the locker door, and the cubicle
This code will, once entered to the cubicle door upon exit, and only once the shower process has run, reset the door so a new user can enter, but
only once the occupant of that cubicle has finished their activity, used the shower, and left the cubicle. Modern (not over complicated and expensive,
just modern) technology could be installed in this situation for less than the cost of say, I don't know, creating an entirely separate locker room
for those caught between a rock and hard place, gender wise, and those who oppose their right to be who they are. It would render all members of the
student body equal, and prevent the sort of nonsense that is coming up at the moment. It would also teach students about healthy boundaries.
For me personally, even as a guy, my boundaries are simple. I will not be showing anyone mine, and I do not want to see anyone else's, thank you very
much. This would make that work for everyone, in every class, WITHOUT the need to increase the amount of space being used for showering, or lockers,
or changing. It would, however, make the process of dealing with ones dignity an awful lot easier for everyone.
